That sounds good a new rig without 6m (50MHz) but I guess NTC even did not notice yet .... maybe never ...

Well there is still the type approval ... have a look here even if this rig doesn't has 6m it also still has to be approved ...

Original Thread

For any radio whose model number appears on the list you should not need to physically have it inspected and tested by NTC. By extension you would pay the paper processing and sticker fee only.

For a 'NEW' radio whose model number is NOT on the list you would be liable for the first time testing and registration which requires two radios and 25,000 Baht.

No contradiction but two different conditions apply depending on the model of the radio.

The two radios and 25,000 baht thing is an NTC standard that applies to all radio products, I have some involvement in doing NTC approvals in a professional capacity, and whilst ham equipment was previously treated differently it is now lumped in with all other radio products.

There are a couple of glimmers in all this gloom however. On the commercial side I have been told that provided a product has been tested to certain other recognised standards which Thailand recognises and is trying to align itself with then it is likely that subject to submission of the relevant approval certificate that this will be accepted without the need to test and pay the fee here. US FCC approval does not qualify but IEC 60489-2, EN  300 676 or AZ/NZS 4583 testing and certification would be acceptable.

Unfortunately I don't think even if a radio had such certification that it would change the import licence requirements of not covering other than the permitted spectrum.

Hey folks.
Know that the alinco your talking about, also can be bought in a swl/reciever version only.
Do anyone of you, know any shop in Bangkok that has this ? or other equavalent good shortwave recievers available ?

I have go get one when going to my family in Phu Toi this summer, since time gets too long without a radio...
